Upcoming soul/blues festival in Helena, Arkansas

Many fans come to the Delta region seeking out traditional blues, but one of the most vital scenes today is of modern "soul/blues." Mel Waiters, Sir Charles Jones, Luther Lackey and Sweet Angel are all leading artists in this genre. This festival takes place on the levee of the Mississippi River in the same space of the main stage of the King Biscuit Blues Festival.
